"Although the soul-pop artist and progressive rock group may never have anticipated meeting, they treated Morgantown to an event for all brands of music lovers." —Alex McPherson, "The Daily Athenaeum"

While the audience was much smaller than expected, only 1,800, for the April 2011 concert by Thirty Seconds to Mars and Cee Lo Green, those who were at the show experienced an unforgettable evening of music.

CB7, a side project of Thirty Seconds to Mars drummer Shannon Leto, started the night off with their single "Pretend for the Weekend."

Cee Lo Green took the stage next, opening his set with "Bright Lights, Bigger City" before inviting his former crew, the Goodie Mob, to join him for some old-school rap. Green then performed some of his hits, including "Crazy;' "Run (I'm a Natural Disaster)," "Smiley Faces" and "Gone Daddy Gone, from his time as half of the duo Gnarls Barkley. He saved his mega-hit "F--- You" for the final song of his set.

Thirty Seconds to Mars began their show with "A Beautiful Lie" and then proceeded to invite the audience to make their way to the floor for a more intimate experience. At one point during their set, white confetti bearing phrases like "We love you @ThirtySEC­ONDSTOMARS" and "Help I'm trapped in a fortune cookie factory" dropped from the ceiling. After the band ended their set with "Closer to the Edge," the crowd was able to coax front man Jared Leto back out for an acoustic encore.
